About the Course

How can we create agile micro aerial vehicles that are able to operate autonomously in cluttered indoor and outdoor environments? You will gain an introduction to the mechanics of flight and the design of quadrotor flying robots and will be able to develop dynamic models, derive controllers, and synthesize planners for operating in three dimensional environments. You will be exposed to the challenges of using noisy sensors for localization and maneuvering in complex, three-dimensional environments. Finally, you will gain insights through seeing real world examples of the possible applications and challenges for the rapidly-growing drone industry. Mathematical prerequisites: Students taking this course are expected to have some familiarity with linear algebra, single variable calculus, and differential equations. Programming prerequisites: Some experience programming with MATLAB or Octave is recommended (we will use MATLAB in this course.) MATLAB will require the use of a 64-bit computer....

The course is very good.\n\nThe classes are well taught and show general concepts. It is necessary to do research on the internet, to solve the assignments. This is not a bad thing in my point of view

I think this is very good course of aerial robotics research. Being a student of robotics, I feel that some of stuffs in this course needs a good background in control and mechanical engineering.

It was a great course; however, sometimes the lectures are not enough to understand some of the concepts that are being tested.

Aprendí bastante sobre como se programa y cómo funciona un dron con este curso. Requiere ciertos conocimientos de mathlab.

The course is theoretically great but i think it needs some more focus on the coding of path plannes taught theoretically.

O curso é muito bom. Aconselho a ter mais atividade de programação que preparem o aluno para a atividade final da semana.

great course

but the course material could be provided for free

not every body in india have 3000 rs to spare
